SpringSource gone!!

WOW! This was indeed the news I am not sure how to interpret. SpringSource is acquired by VMWare (see http://blog.springsource.com/2009/08/10/springsource-chapter-two/) for about $400 million! I recently narrowed down on Hyperic application management solution and by the time we looked they were acquired by SpringSource. Now, by the time we made up our mind on OEM, they are gone too!!!

At a top level, this seems to be appropriate for VMWare to add all those capabilities. But, not sure if all its offering makes sense to VMWare stack. Anyway, I hope Hyperic is retained and extended to support full VM stack management.

I wonder where this ends. Before we realize, consolidation is happening...
